It is good news that we now have a “stakeholder board” that is making progress towards our new hospital. Except that is seems we must not call it a hospital but a “Community Resource Centre”. Every hospital can fit into this description, so why not call it by the name we have been anticipating for so long? I note that Mair Morris is quoted as calling it a “replacement facility for Cardigan Hospital”. There is no doubt we need better integration of services, but my dictionary defines a hospital as “an institution for the care of the sick and injured”. Will the stakeholders need to advise the Oxford of a new definition? John Southern Llangoedmor

I read with interest the letter from L J Jenkins of Gwbert last week purporting that wind farms will exacerbate flooding all over Wales and the Welsh Marches. This could not be further from the truth, as the construction work carried out to develop an area for a wind farm could actually help to reduce the likelihood of floods in the future.

The severe flooding around Talybont, north of Aberystwyth, featured on the BBC TV national news on Saturday June 9th will become a regular occurrence in future if the Nant y Moch wind farm goes ahead.

It is an absolute disgrace that the Chief Executives of Welsh Local Authorities are paid such vast salaries , especially since Welsh counties have such small populations, often well below 250,000........many with a lot less than 100,000.

I would respectfully request that in the view of the many letters (Tivy-Side last week) criticising the Cardigan and District Chamber of Commerce following its observations on the language issue at Cardigan Primary School you would print my response.

Dear Editor, I have little idea as to the identities and backgrounds of the ‘more than 1,000 signatories in opposition to a Welsh -Medium education at Ysgol Gynradd Aberteifi, but allow me as a teacher of 15 years’ experience of teaching at local primary and secondary schools to hazard a guess at some of the reasons for their concerns.
